Awwwww Yumo!!!

I seriously didn’t think I would be making something like this, but I was inspired by my curiousity to be more healthy and eat unprocessed foods, (which I have been in the last few weeks).

So, I Googled and YouTubed “raw chocolate cake”  but my keyword was “fast” or “easy” .  I don’t like long drawn out, slow and complicated.  And this is my version of what I stumbled upon.

 

Ingredients 

I used all organic ingredients 

  • 1.5 cup pecan
  • 1.5 cup walnut (their recipe only asked for walnuts and no pecans)
  • 1.5 cup pitted dates (their recipe asked for 20 dates) – depending on how sweet you like it then add more or use less
  • 2/3 cup of  cocao powder
  • pinch of sea salt
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 1 Tblspn of water
  • 1 banana thinly sliced

 

Method

  1. Place pecan, walnuts, dates, cinnamon and cocao powder in Thermomix (speed 4-5)  or blender until the nuts are crushed or crumbly like but not like powder.
  2. Add water and blend again.
  3. Use a baking dish or pirex and pour the mixture into the dish to form a layer. Then compact it down
  4. Add sliced banana to the layer and then place another layer of the mixture on top, compacting it down again.
  5. Leave in the fridge for approximately 30-40 mins.
  6. Slice up when ready!

Everyone who happened to come around to my place that day and a few days after were made to sample my new found raw chocolate recipe. They all gave it the thumbs up!

I only had a very tiny slice (less than a teaspoon). That was plenty for me to satisfy my chocolate sweet tooth.

Apparently, you can use this crumble as a base to the raw cheese cake recipe. That’s next on the cooking agenda.

So, would you give it a go?
